The AHCI already works in Windows 7.

Do you have a tutorial for Windows XP ????

This work fine installing the software (XP).

But one problem. I can't boot into windows 7 without changing the setting
back to AHCI and into Winxp without changing it to ATA.

Does anyone know a way to get around this?

You need to make both HD's AHCI or ATA.
